Marking system
Marking scheme
Tests and exams are marked strictly according to the official marking scheme employed by French schools, all of which
contribute to the final mark. Marks are set over 20 points.
0 – 06/20
Fail with possible resit
06 – 10/20
Fail but get the ECTS credit and other grades within the same study unit can offset this grade
10 – 12/20
12 – 14/20
Quite good
14 – 16/20
16 – 20/20
Very good (most of the time, these marks are not used)
Average marks are also calculated by Study Unit, and you need an average mark of at least 10/20 to get the ECTS. So be careful
when you chose your subjects.
The ECTS credit system
ECTS : What is a credit system?
A credit system is a systematic way of describing an educational programme by attaching credits to its components. The
definition of credits in higher education systems may be based on different parameters, such as student workload, learning
outcomes and contact hours.
What is ECTS?
The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System is a student-centred system based on the student workload required
to achieve the objectives of a programme, objectives preferably specified in terms of learning outcomes and competences to be
The performance of the student is documented by a local/national grade. It is good practice to add an ECTS grade, in particular
in case of credit transfer. The ECTS grading scale ranks the students on a statistical basis. Therefore, statistical data on student
performance is a prerequisite for applying the ECTS grading system.
A distinction is made between the grades FX and F that are used for unsuccessful students. FX means: "fail- some more work
required to pass" and F means: "fail – considerable further work required". The inclusion of failure rates in the Transcript of
Records is optional.
Survival Guide 2013
Why introduce ECTS?
ECTS makes study programmes easy to read and compare for all students, local and foreign. ECTS facilitates mobility and
academic recognition. ECTS helps universities to organise and revise their study programmes. ECTS can be used across a variety
of programmes and modes of delivery. ECTS makes European higher education more attractive for students from other
What are the key documents of ECTS?
The Learning Agreement contains the list of courses to be taken and agreed upon by the student and the responsible academic
body of the institution concerned. In case of credit transfer, the Learning Agreement has to be agreed upon by the student and
the two institutions concerned before the student‟s departure and to be updated immediately when changes occur.
The Transcript of Records documents the performance of a student by showing the list of courses taken, the credits gained as
well as the local grades and possibly ECTS grades awarded. In case of credit transfer, the Transcript of Records has to be issued
by the home institution for outgoing students before departure and by the host institution for incoming students at the end of
their period of study.

Resident Permit Procedure for non-European students
Students from outside Europe (that is, students from countries other than the 28 countries of the European Economic
Zone, plus Andorra, Monaco, Switzerland, San Marino, and the Vatican) must obtain a long-term visa marked étudiant if they
intend to study in France for more than 6 months.
As soon as you arrive in France, you'll want to take two important steps to comply with French immigration regulations. The
sooner you get these formalities out of the way, the smoother and more pleasant your stay will be. International students of all
nationalities (except European Union nationals) living in France for more than 3 months must obtain a student residency permit
(which is distinct from a visa), within two months of their arrival in France.
1. Important documents for students staying more than 3 months:
Students must register at OFII (Office Français de l‟Immigration et de l‟Intégration). To do so, the student must go to the
“Mairie” (town hall) of the town he/she lives in and give all these documents to the person in charge of immigration procedures:
birth certificate translated in French
passport + visa
health insurance covering health expenses in France
enrolment certificate at IPAC
bank account in France + proof of sufficient income (ex: academic grant, salary) thanks to bank receipts
proof of address (electricity or telephone bill, householder‟s attestation)
if you are married: copy of your family record book
2. Very important things to notice:
- A tourist visa cannot be converted into a student visa in France or in any other country of the European Union.
http://www.edufrance.fr/en/a-etudier/PDF/universite.pdf2 - If you plan to complete two programs (such as a program in French
as a foreign language, followed by an academic program), obtain admission to both programs before applying for your visa so
that your visa will be valid for the duration of your period of study. French visas cannot be extended.
3. Health insurance
You must ensure that you have health coverage.
European students who meet the following to be entitled to FREE Social Security:
Be in possession of the European Health Card (you get it through your Social Security) or of E106, E109, E111, E121or
Be registered as a student in a higher education institution
Non-European students, who have a residency permit in France are entitled to FREE Social Security.
Non-European students, younger than 20 years old can to entitled to fee paying Social Security (about 200 €). We organise your
registration to Social Security.
Non-European students, older than 20 years old have to come with their own complementary health insurance providing for
health expenses, accident expenses, liability insurance and repatriation.
In any case students can subscribe to a complementary insurance, either in France or in their home country, as the Social
Security doesn‟t pay for all medical expenses. We remind you that every year, one foreign student ends up in the hospital after a
skiing or mountain biking accident. Hospital fees, medicine, visits from the nurse and physical therapy are very expensive and
without complementary insurance, about 30% of the costs are personally yours.
Doctors and dentists
In order to find a doctor or dentist, consult the „yellow pages‟ or the telephone directory (www.pagesjaunes.fr). In case of an
emergency, dial 15 to reach SAMU from any end-line phone or 112 from a mobile phone.

In France, medication, whether prescribed or over the counter, is sold exclusively in pharmacies. There is always an open
pharmacy during public holidays, nights and Sundays, which address is specified in the local newspaper. In order to contact the
night pharmacy, call the police service on 17.
Phone boxes can be found in just about every part of town. These phones work with phone cards or bank cards. There are
many different types of phone cards available depending the country you wish to call. You can buy them in any newsagent or
tobacco shop.
For mobile phones, SIM cards can be purchased in phone shops for 30€ with different amounts of credit already on
them. Credits can then be bought in all newsagents for 10, 20and 30 €. (It‟s recommended to buy the highest credit you can
afford seeing as 10 € credit only lasts 15 days whereas 20 € credit lasts 2 months). There are several mobile phone operators;
the main of them being Orange, SFR and Bouygues telecom. We recommend you to come with your own mobile phone and buy
a French SIM card here.
Prepaid phone cards from 5 to 60€. You can buy a SIM card for less than 10€. Possibility to buy a phone for around 20€.
The post
There are several post offices in Annecy, easily recognised by their blue and yellow logo. Post offices are usually open Monday
to Friday from 8am through to 7pm, and from 8am-12pm on Saturdays (close on Saturday afternoon). Stamps are also sold by
Most of the leading banks in France have established branches in Annecy. Opening hours vary from one bank to another, some
of them even open on Saturday mornings. Besides cash, cheques and bank cards are the most commonly used forms of payment
in France. Banks charge commission on certain transactions (exchanging currencies or travellers‟ cheques, bank transfers). The
commission charge varies from one bank to the next.
Reminder: within the Euro zone, withdrawing money from an ATM and bank transfers between two countries are free of
charge. We only recommend to students coming from countries outside the Euro zone to open a bank account in France
(withdrawal and transfer charges).
Opening a bank account is easy. Before coming, ask your own bank if they have commercial links with any banks overseas, as
this may cut down charges.
If you decide not to open an account in France and wish to use your bank card in France, make sure you notify your bank you
will be using your card in a different country.
As Annecy is a small town, it is easy to go from one place to the other cycling or walking. A large network of bicycle paths is
available around and in the town. Main student residences are not located near the town centre and near IPAC, and it takes
about half an hour to forty five minutes to walk in. Town center is only 15min walk from IPAC.
It is quite easy to rent a bicycle in the Annecy area, especially for students. “VeloNecy”, located next to the train station has a
yearly rental offer for students for 5€/ month. To benefit from this offer, you need your student ID, you identity card or
passport, bank details and insurance. A security lock is included in the price.

More about Annecy
The capital of Haute Savoie region is Annecy, a picturesque town located in the northern Alps, constituting the north-east
region of the Rhone Alpes. The Haute Savoie is favorably situated in what is considered to be an excellent location for
entrepreneurship. Closeness to Switzerland and Italy, a well developed communications network and a deep-rooted artisan
historical tradition, have all contributed to its growth and development. The region reaches tops in Europe, when it comes to
successful businesses.
The diversity of landscape, both mountainous and rustic, is an exceptionally welcoming place in both winter and
summer and also proves to be highly beneficial for the region‟s tourism. Consequently, the region is one of the
leading tourist destinations in France.

I spent the first half of my year abroad in Spain, and I had a fantastic

Coming to Annecy changed our outlook, on life. We‟ve broadened our horizons and made cemented everlasting friendships.
Annecy has it all; a famous lake, picturesque mountains, an old town and a thriving student community that helps keep it young
at heart. We‟ve not only had the chance to experience French culture, but we were privileged enough to sample other cultures,
as Annecy is a drop of point for students from all over the world. We lived in Marquisats halls of residence, and definitely
enjoyed it. There is a subsidised restaurant on the premises, and an open air pool just opposite. It is also just a ten minute walk
into town. IPAC has not just been about going to classes, we also went to conferences in Switzerland, outings to adventure
parks, and spent a week in Spain. We will definitely be very sorry to say goodbye.
